Glute Strengthening Plus Chiropractic Eases Back Pain

Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”

Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t hurt.”

Chiropractors like your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center wonder how to get back pain patients to do suggested exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients wonder why the chiropractor recommends exercises when all they wanted was for the chiropractor to correct the back pain problem. What a dilemma! Both the Paramus chiropractor and Paramus chiropractic patient have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then works together to relieve Paramus back pain, prevent future pain, and strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!

EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Guidelines for what to do with back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual therapy are also listed in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care Initiative. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center carefully considers these in caring for Paramus back pain.

BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES

Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain shapes that decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles. In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common. Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially in women. (3) For Paramus chiropractic back pain patients facing persistent lumbopelvic pain and test positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who did exercise found a decrease in pain and an improvement in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing both - exercise to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings more deliverately during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced their form. (6) Let your Paramus chiropractor be your laser pointer! Consider using the proposed tips for how to exercise the right way.
